Product description


This fascinating collection of essays puts women's history at the forefront of the Mexican Revolution and identifies women's complex political participation. This volume should encourage a debate about how revolutionary ideology in Mexico placed women at the margins at the same time that mothers formed the core of Mexican modernity.--Donna Guy, The Ohio State University

Through nine impressively crafted essays, the authors investigate numerous and various ways women shaped revolutionary activism in Mexico from 1910 to 1953....Through innovative investigations of temperance workers, teachers, prostitutes, urban elite women, female military veterans, and other women, this important book reveals how the revolution created new opportunities for women to become social actors while broadening their contributions in areas traditionally reserved for women. The essays reveal that as the government expanded its role in people's lives, crossing into sectors previously regarded as "the women's sphere," women became more influential in crafting the revolutionary agenda. An important consequence of the book is the recognition that additional critical investigations of women will reshape contemporary interpretations of the revolution. Such an expanded analysis has had other significant results, including a broader interpretation of feminism in Mexico, the ways gender roles are considered and evaluated, and how women's history in Mexico might be more expansively studied. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals.--CHOICE

The Women's Revolution in Mexico, 1910-1953 takes a fresh look at the effects and significant changes brought by the armed struggle and subsequent state reorganization to the lives of women and gender relations in Mexico, culminating in women's hard-fought right to vote, which was finally acquired in 1953.--Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, Spring 2008

The topics range from the struggle by seven women for acknowledgement as 'Veteran of the Revolution', to the fight for women's suffrage, which despite the major contribution of women to the revolution was granted only in 1953.--International Review Of Social History

The essas in this volume cohere remarkably well....Highly suited for course adoption, and should be of interest to scholars ofmodern Mexican history....The inventive use of a rich array of primary sources by almost all of the authors distinguishes this collection as a solis emirical contribution to the study of the diversity of women's experiences in post revolutionary Mexico.--Latin American Studies, February 2008
